How Long Should Your Listing Be?

The ideal description is 4-6 sentences. Pick two of your best features and one exciting attraction nearby. Short, informative sentences are all you need.

Rental listing descriptions are best formatted as a paragraph. Bullet-points are great for lists, but the description is not a list- it should be full of useful, persuasive information. It’s a more professional format.
